Biography

New single "Falling Outta Love" won the "love" category of 2012's WAM Song Of The Year Competition, and received it's first national radio play later that December. Early January 2013 it was added to Triple J rotation and has since been receiving generous airplay and an overwhelming amount of downloads from the unearthed site.

"The band has everything going for them right now" - Drum Media. (Nov 2012)

"This is such a fun stomper of a track."
Gemma Pike, triple j (4/5 rating for Falling Outta Love)

"This song is siiiick!" - Malcolm Clark, The Sleepy Jackson

***

No-one wants to be in a ‘rock band.’ Those two words aren’t exciting, mysterious or dangerous anymore. Once upon a time, rock music was the startling sound of those on the vanguard, marked by a reckless abandon. Now it’s timeworn, musty, wallpaper – those who invented it are old enough to be our grandparents – right?

SUGARPUSS are a band whose roots taste like old school rock, but like a fine wine have matured so that if you were to open them now you would hear more of a "Pop".

Appearing (as per one of their song titles) ‘Out of Nowhere’, the group recalls the more finely crafted moments of early prog, glam, and mind-expanding art pop. But every influence is just that: an echo that finds its way into rich sonic explorations, propelled along by infectious guitar lines, stormy percussion, cascading synthesizer hooks and bass lines that swing along underneath unknowingly making you dance.
The chillingly feminine voice of Jake Webb sails above it all, a robust but fragile howl spitting out lyrics that can be tongue in cheek, sarcastic, heart felt, emotive, visual...
...take them how you will, but mind what you watch:

They have a tendency to stay with you long after the lights are out and the pretty bar girl has declared the night is through.

Over the course of their striking live show, they lead you through glimmering harmonies, subtle arrangements and wild, primal freak-outs. But no matter where they take you, you’ll be glad you came along. If you think you’re bored with rock music, think again. Sugarpuss make it sound as fresh and adventurous as the day it was born.

Lyrics

Falling Outta Love

Written By: Sugarpuss

Waking up is never much fun
At night I sleep inside a shot gun
la la la la la la lie
la la la la lie

Falling outta love is so much fun
Don't you know you weren't the only one

The days they play out like a re-run
But you just laugh and say come on..

la la la la la la lie
la la la la lie

Falling outta love is so much fun
Don't you know you weren't the only one

love.

Drinking Alone

Written By: Sugarpuss

So I called up my Mumma
And asked her if we could be friends
She said no f****n way son
And this is where our story ends

Could go to a party
But everyone hates me
So I called up my girlfriend
and she's like..

I been drinking alone again
all the time been drinking alone again
I been drinking alone again
all the time its got me thinking I'm a lonely man

Spent all my money
(you can borrow some here honey)
My friends think its funny
(oh my god you're just so funny)
Nobody loves me
(oh my god you're just so funny)
Nobody loves me.

I been drinking alone again
all the time been drinking alone again
I been drinking alone again
all the time its got me thinking I'm a lonely man

Masquerade

Written By: Sugarpuss

You're a golden sector high
Above the sky
With your solar sweetness flowing out
And down your sides

Walk with me in the dark
Masquerade, heavy heart

You're a black accosted sunset
The pitch of night
Hopelessness comes swiftly over
To smother light

Walk with me in the dark
Masquerade, heavy heart
You will fall
And the seasons will crawl

Out Of Nowhere

Written By: Sugarpuss

Some kids like going out to a show
I'd rather stay in and watch my beard grow
oh..

I am living
In a show
Jack's bean just
Seam to grow
I am living
In a show
Where they come from
I don't know

I keep my friends with me wherever I go
So that when I feel lonely, I'm never alone

I am living
In a show
Jack's bean just
Seam to grow
I am living
In a show
Where they come from
I don't know

My head is burning but my hands feel cold
I can feel the blood trickling from out of my nose

I am living
In a show
Jack's bean just
Seam to grow
I am living
In a show
Where they come from
I don't know

To tell you the truth its really come out of nowhere
Do you know where?

I am living
In a show
Jack's bean just
Seam to grow
I am living
In a show
Where they come from
I don't know
